Updated for 2019 with some of my favourite Chinese-inspired recipes!
We may not take part in a lot of the traditional Chinese New Year activities such as lighting firecrackers and red paper decorations, but we do love to make our own homemade Chinese banquet.
I love Chinese take-out as much as anyone, but it's so easy to make some great Chinese dishes that are quicker, healthier and tastier.
Here are some of the favourites I make at home:
My copycat recipe of that Panda Express favourite - ready in 20 minutes!
This Chinese Style Curry with Juicy Meatballs makes a great, comforting dinner. Serve with cauliflower rice for a lighter dinner!
